Big thanks go to Coombe Garage Pro Tyres in Nailsea for sponsoring this event meaning even more prizes. It was great to have so many volunteers and especially lots of men helping with starting and the halfway house, with great organisation by the ladies’ vice-captain Roz Hughes.

Thus, in Division 1, the winner of the home prize was Peter Millet (40) and of the away prize, Colin Grindle of Forest Hills (37). In Division 2, the home winner was next year’s seniors’ captain, Arthur Piercy (39) and away winner, Tony Evans of Cradoc (38).
